I have given up the right to be your parent

Todays quotation is from Mr. Churchill’s Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal.

Edmund cleared his throat. “I do … I do want you to know how proud I am of you. And know I’ve given up all rights to be your father. But perhaps we can be friends?

Everyone needs allies

Todays quotation is from Instrument of Darkness by Imogen Robertson.

“The tree is one of the reasons we came to Caveley.    My husband said he would worry less about us while at sea if he knew we had such a friend and guardian.”

He did not answer at once, but when he did he sounded a little more like his usual self.

“Do you really need a guardian, Mrs Westerman?”

She smiled. “I’d like to think not. But everyone needs allies, don’t you agree, Mr Crowther?”
